Irwin Elman spent more than a decade as Ontario's child and youth advocate before the PC government closed his office and shifted some of his responsibilities to the ombudsman. The decision hasn't been popular, both with Elman or child welfare advocates concerned about the future of children in care. Elman joins Steve Paikin to discuss his concerns and his final report on youth homes in Thunder Bay.
